Customer Question
Panasonic.com/dvdhelp sent me to...

Panasonic.com/dvdhelp sent me to you!? I bought a used dvd/vhs combo player/recorder and am trying to get it to work on a newer tv; what kind of universal remote can I buy and how do I set it up to work with this old panasonic model no: DMR-ES40V?

Technician's Assistant: What is the model of your TV?

VIZIO VA26L (Vizio hd 10T), whoa, so maybe it's not much newer than the vcr/dvd player/recorder 2008 is the publication date of the booklet

Technician's Assistant: What menu options can you access, if any?

I got it playing by using old yellow/red/white connectors and it plays dvd's just with the front buttons, which don't allow pause, ff, or rev/rew, and don't work at all on the vcr side. the dvd is only black-and-white for some reason, tho sometimes it will flicker a little color, so do I need a better connector, like the single round one (what's that called?).

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes, question #2: if I can get a remote to work with it, how do I copy vhs to dvd, and will it be apparent how I record from tv? or do i need to unplug the connectors to do that?
